My United connecting flight was delayed. I rushed to arrive at the gate prior to the departure time to be told the plane had left early and I had been rescheduled to the next morning at 7am. However, there were no vouchers available for me to stay in a hotel or get food. So, I was able to get a flight on American that got me home the same night. By the way, the American flight was delaying takeoff to wait for passengers who had been delayed on their connecting flights.

Nothing, at first how cheap it was, but one quickly realizes you get what they paid for.

The fact that they blamed the weather for their in ability to land, but the reality is that the airline is so cheap they don't carry enough fuel to be able to give it another go at landing in Las Vegas. We were literally only about 15 20 feet from landing at our destination when the pilot decided to speed up and give it another go. But then they gave us some b.s. about how their gate was taken and they had no other available gates, but then they blamed the weather. Wish they could get their story straight. Anyway, the airline just stranded us in Los Angeles, which is even weirder since we took off from San Diego...

There's no "complimentary" snacks on Frontier. Which is fine, their flights are cheap and comfortable and the snacks are affordable. I also don't really appreciate having to pay for a carry on. I knew about this so made sure my bag would be considered a personal item, but I just don't know how I feel about that as a backpack may not even fit under that seat. But again, the flight was cheap. So, I don't know.

The lighthearted way the flight crew shared information with passengers on the plane. This helped to Make the trip settle more entertaining and enjoyable.

We experienced a 75 minute delay due to the bad weather and need for the plane to be de-iced. Because this caused us to be off-schedule, It would have been helpful and reassuring to have received periodic updates regarding our location and ETA, once we were underway (especially towards the end of the flight).

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
